  7. Effects of simulated sea motion on stepping behaviour in sheep

    Contributor(s):: Navarro, Grisel, Santurtun, Eduardo, Phillips, Clive J. C.

    Animals respond to a moving floor during transport by stepping in different directions to maintain their balance, but little is known about the importance of different types of movement. Four sheep were restrained in a crate on a platform that could be programmed to provide the various movements...

  8. Equine assisted activities and therapies: A case study of an older adult

    Contributor(s):: Wehofer, Lisa, Goodson, Nicole, Shurtleff, Tim L.

  9. Horse preference for orientation during transport and the effect of orientation on balancing ability

    Contributor(s):: Gibbs, A. E., Friend, T. H.

    Twelve horses transported in a 16-m long commercial straight-deck, topless trailer (16 wheels) were either: tied to the left side of the trailer (TL), tied to the right (TR) or loose (L). Four horses at a time were transported 4 laps around a 3.6-km rectangular course, reversing direction each...

  12. Long-term effects of robotic hippotherapy on dynamic postural stability in cerebral palsy

    | Contributor(s):: Young Joo Cha, Megan Stanley, Tim Shurtleff, Joshua S. H. You

    Dynamic postural instability is a common neuromuscular impairment in cerebral palsy (CP), which often includes balance dysfunction and an associated risk of serious falls. Robotic hippotherapy has recently become a widespread clinical application to facilitate postural core stabilization,...

  13. Non-native species do threaten the natural environment

    | Contributor(s):: Simberloff, D.

    Sagoff [See Journal of Agricultural and Environmental Ethics (2005) 18, 215-236] argues, against growing empirical evidence, that major environmental impacts of non-native species are unproven. However, many such impacts, including extinctions of both island and continental species, have both...

    The objectives of this study were to examine the effects of the Thai Elephant‐Assisted Therapy Programme for children with Down syndrome (DS) (TETP‐D) on balance, postural control and visual motor integration (VMI). A quasi‐experimental design with blind control was used. Sixteen children with...
